First Farmshare Box

(written by Sam)

We delivered our first farmshare boxes today!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis first box of the season consists of different kinds of greens. The pea shoots are good chopped in a salad or braised for a stir-fry. The baby greens can be eaten in a salad or cooked. There is some superficial damage to the greens due to flea beetle (not actually a flea), which chews little holes in the leaves. Also included is a head of garlic stored from last fall (garlic keeps pretty well, though it should be used soon as it is starting to sprout).

  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1 head lettuce
  • 1 bag pea shoots
  • 1 bunch Swiss chard
  • 1 bag of baby greens (spinach, beets, kale, mustards)
  • 1 bunch dandelion greens
  • 1 head of garlic

I’ll try to keep updating our recipes page with our weekly recipes this year, so check that out for some tasty ideas of what to do with all of this delicious produce.

    We miss you, but since last year I grow now many more veggies at home and coordinate a community garden where I also have a plot…more than enough!…hope you, Adam and little Sylvia are doing great and enjoying the island…:)

    • Glad to hear you’re growing more food! Is that the garden project up in Fleetwood?

        Nop, but that one was done last Saturday…I was running a community food mapping and couldn’t attend. Mine is South Surrey “Food for Thought” community garden and my “Permaculture in pots” in my balcony and deck…:)
